Class will begin with a brief history of bitters, followed by tastings so you can learn how to use bitters in cocktails, as herbal remedies, and even in cooking. Yes, that means cocktails will be served!

You will learn basic formulas, tools, and processes for making bitters from botanicals like orange peels and coffee beans, wormwood, and dragon’s blood. Then craft a batch of versatile citrus bitters plus your own unique blend of bitters to take home. All supplies and a recipe handout included.

Communal, Downtown Los Angeles, CA

In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make all-natural preserves from luscious fall fruits and spices. You’ll roll up your sleeves, chop, stir, and make a jar each of pear jam and apple chutney to take home along with a recipe sheet.

We’ll discuss how to choose the most flavorful ingredients, how to make preserves without added pectin, how to safely can foods using the boiling water bath method, and any other questions you have about canning.

An afternoon of creative work and good company is not complete without refreshments, so we will provide delicious drinks and snacks. In addition, Emily will demonstrate (with tastings!) how to make liqueurs and cordials from seasonal fruits such as pears, persimmons, plums, and pomegranates.

Class size is limited to 20.
